Not as good as "Doppelganger"
29 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

Sydney and Dixon go to London to steal a DNA decoding device from an art gallery. Their mission is a success; then, Sydney is sent to Romania to enter a mental institution as a patient, get close to a brainwashed assassin and find out where he has buried a dead body whose DNA SD-6 is interested in. However, the director of that clinic may have his own agenda....Definitely weaker than the previous episode (I was particularly disappointed with they way they quickly glossed over the dilemma of Sydney telling Dixon that she's a double agent, IMO the most compelling plot element of "Doppelganger"), this one does have a clever Hitchcockian bit with Sydney in "extreme heat" (no pun intended), an exciting final 5 minutes in the asylum, and gives Jennifer Garner and Carl Lumbly the chance to do some of their finest acting so far - her when posing as a mental patient and him when playing up the comedy of his "foreign millionaire" identity in the London art gallery. **1/2 out of 4.
